. >> reporter: as "the washington post" wrote on election day 2005, the president's advisers last week opted to rearrange yesterday's return, to include a stop in the virginia capital in the hope of helping kilgore pull out a victory. it would offer a well-timed vindication of bush's clout. if kilgore wins, the president's political heart keeps beating. >> ladies and gentlemen, theth president of the united states, george w. bush. >> i appreciate you coming out here to the airport. we were just flying in from latin america. when you find a man who's got this kind of character, it makes sense to stop short of the destination and come in and say to the people in this state, put him in office and he'll be proud of the job he'll do for you. >> but in the end, kilgore was trounced. >> this showed that the president's policies in red states are drawing extreme concern. >> republicans eyeing next year's midterm elections are nervous. unlike 2002, when the president was a top draw for congressional candidates, now mr. bush's troubles have left republicans looking for distance. >> reporter: and repub
the dogs to eat the dog food. good morning from new york. election week and it's a big deal for "the daily rundown." let's get back to our first read. who is going to win and lose the governor's races. it's not in doubt. what we want to know is what will the victories look like. how wide will the margins be and how will the parties respond. this is a rally in annandale, virginia. joe biden is campaigning for democrats. the ultimate swing state in the country, democrats could sweep all five major statewide offices. think about this. the two u.s. senate seats and governor lg and ag. that's all possible and if they do, it will be the first time since the nixon administration. then this stat. since 1976, the party that wins the white house lost the virginia governor's race the following year. democrats about to break that curse? looks like it. that brings us to the issue that is going to be of the chattering classes conversation after on wednesday. the thing that held the republican back in the obama era. the tea party that appears to have republicans headed for defeat. the party was taken ove
which way the country is headed now. for nearly 40 years covering the last nine elections, the party occupying the white house has lost the following race. this shows that streak may be about to end. terry mcauliffe leads ken cuccinelli by 12 points. his largest margin in the poll yet. and when mcauliffe supporters asked what motivates their vote, as i said, nearly two-thirds, 64%, say it's the chance to vote against the republican cuccinelli. by just not being the extreme right winger, the democrat gets the bulk of the votes. this matches, by the way, almost the 65% of virginia voters who have now said they have an unfavorable opinion of the republican party nationally suggesting the force driving this election of virginia next tuesday is the negative voter feeling about the republican party nationally. gene, this is stark stuff. i know we live in washington. i know virginia's to our south across the potomac. but this is the canary in the mine that just died for the republican party. >> well, i think it did. if you look at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's become more
saturday morning in november, we are feeling the excitement. we are counting down to election day 2013. polls will be opening less than 72 hours from right now. we are also learning a whole lot more of what happened behind the scenes during the last presidential election. new juicy details on the campaign change in the campaign. one potential contender is in hot water this week for plagerism. what exactly did rand paul say? where was it said before? most importantly, will there be long-term fallout for rand paul going forward? today on up against the clock, very exciting, we inaugurate the legends division. our first congressional slate of contestants. stick around for that. first, this weekend marked one full month since the launch of the obama care website october 1st. >> that rollout we can safely say has been an absolute disaster for the obama administration both in terms of image and impact, all for the very simple reason the website has not worked. the driving principle behind the site is to acquaint uninsured americans with the various health insurance plans available to them to
now of you trying to dismantle the election? >> there is no way to fix this mon strotity. >> how do you know how many people have enrolled. >> this is an incredibly bad rollout. >> you didn't read the law as nancy pelosi said you should. >> it's not just health care.gov that's glitching, the entire plan of obama care is doomed to failure. >> this law itself is born from an architecture that's just not workable. >> the foundation he's talking about is the system of health care exchanges. >> you leave medicare as is, or you can have federal subsidies so you can go out and buy your own. >> in the medical exchange. you have coverage options within medicare, you get to pick among these plans, they have to meet at least medicare's criteria. >> the ryan plan uses federally run exchanges just like obama care. >> it transforms medicare into a plan that's very similar to the president's own health care bill. >> obama care takes everyone in the individual market and puts them on regulated government run insurance exchange, one step closer to singer payer, but not there. the ryan plan takes sen
the rolls and they didn't want it in an election year. >> there's an alien in -- >> that's not even a conspiracy theory. >> what, the alien? >> please, that makes perfect political sense. >> that alien does not have insurance. >> -- our last point about political sense, bob, even you would appreciate this, some of the ads i saw today targeting red state democrats saying, why was it that senator pryor in arkansas defended and repeated the obama care lie? that is very effective tagging. and will help the republicans in 2014. >> it's a strong statement to say the president of the united states is a liar. i hope you all can feel comfortable saying that. >> i can. he's a liar. >> i wouldn't say that to any president. >> the scandal shows what the media will do to get their guy in. they kept this cat in the bag. now that the cat's out of the bag, it doesn't matter. >> and you wish you would have bought a dog. >> exactly. because dogs are much nicer. >> up next, "the new york times" says president obama simply misspoke on obama care. greg will get "the new york times" straight on that late
. do the job elected officials do, could have done more or failed the people of new jersey. we'll share the results later in the show. we'll be right back. >>> hi there. it's a big day here at msnbc. we launched our new website today, one of the tools you can make your own poll. here's one we created. it starts with a, quote, i'm concerned about the fact that there seems to be a war on the -- which cable news personality said this? if you selected mother, you would be right because it was this guy. >> i'm john casey, in tonight for bill o'reilly who's on vacation and i want to thank you for watching us. >> yes, before he was a republican governor of ohio john casey was a hoers over at fox news. so it raised quite a few eyebrows when he said, i'm concerned about the fact that there seems to be a war on the poor, that if you're poor you're somehow shiftless or crazy. just take a few seconds to remember why you know the name john casey, because he enraged working ohioans in 2011 by pushing through a restrictive collective bargaining law. he pushed ahead with his agenda anyway, passing a bu
, president obama was coasting toward re-election, now he's coming off one of the toughest weeks of his second term. let's start out with our chief white house correspondent jon karl. with more on that. you have the obama care, nsa spying controversial and now this new book "double down" shows that winning campaigns aren't pretty on the inside. >> that's right, george. apparently some of the president's top aides leaked so much information to authors of this book. in the president's weekly address, no mention of obama care or veep switches. >> i want to cut through that noise and talk plainly about what we should do right now to keep growing this economy. and creating new jobs. >> reporter: just an effort to turn the page in one of his toughest weeks in his second term. who would have thought this joke on saturday night live. >> millions of americans are visiting healthcare.gov which is great news. unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time. >> reporter: would turn into an actual prediction. on friday, they revealed that only six americans were able to sign up on ob
. silence. are you in good hands? >>> the most consequential and hotly contested election this year will probably be in virginia one week from today. ken cuccinelli versus terry mcauliffe. even people who have voted republican forever say they are not going to vote for ken cuccinelli. who knows, miracles do happen in politics, but ken cuccinelli appears to need one. e.w. jackson trails by more than ken cuccenlli does. so the governor's race looks like a democratic blowout. that means the most hotly contested election might be the attorney general's race in virginia. in that attorney general race, it's republican state senator mark obenshane who's running against democratic state senator mark herring. and right now, they appear to be very close. the senate democrats lead 49-46. which means the race is pretty close to predict with any confidence. and that has caused republicans to see mark obenshane -- now mark obenshane, if he is elected will be famous for that. the last thing he is famous for, though, was what he did in 2009 as a virginia state senator. he introduced a bill that yea
year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to thank volunteers helping people enroll in the new health care exchanges. the president is keeping up a furious public information push, as dueling headlines leave many consumers still confused over the law and its impact. in the "washington post" for consumers whose health premiums go up, sticker shock leads to anger. in the "new york times" millions eligible for free policies. and i'm sure you can imagine that last story was not the one singled out by losing presidential candidate mitt romney on "meet the press." >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from, and that is that he told people they could keep their
year election, you say? that to bill clinton in virginia. like only he can. it to shaq who is in the airwaves. in new jersey for chris christie. it to ted cruz touring iowa like hoe has nothing to lose. things are getting tense between the u.s. and key european allies over reports that the nsa has been listening to calls and reading e-mail for years. white house said president obama didn't know about it. the deep dive into the relationship between two men known by three letters. w and the vp. the tension that ended their term together gotten better or worse in the last five years? good morning from washington. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. get to my first reads of the morning. with eight days before election day, democrats in virginia are setting sights on their first sweep of statewide offices since 1989 as new jersey governor chris christie goes for a transformational blowout, pulling out all the stops to break maybe even 60%. unheard of for a republican in that state. a string of polls show that terry mcauliffe is several points ahead of his republican riv
. now, what remains to be seen is there's elections coming and we don't know what will happen, the outcome of the elections. there should be a process for the trials to go on. you know, there should beconstitutional provisions. the tribunals should continue. and we have a few people who have been put on trial, and undergoing trial. there are many, many more. there's still a lot of evidence around in bangladesh. a lot of people are alive who can give testimony. the process needs to be on. >> very interesting to speak to you. thanks for joining us from london. >>> the government of the pakistani province which borders afghanistan is going to block the nato route. the government says it will review ties and cooperation with the u.s. we are joined by our correspondent in islamabad. clearly this killing of the pakistani leaderer sparked a strong reaction. what measures is the government taking to display their displeasure to the u.s.? >> it's two fold. i think the government in islamabad is content to continue with the rhetoric, to continue with the strong condemn nations against t
for a sensationalist victory, which has more to do with the upcoming election and little to do with justice. >> can i ask you an historical question. why did both men flee bangladesh after the war of independence in "71. if they weren't guilty of anything, what were they fleeing from. >> my understanding, certainly from chowdhury mueen-uddin - he responded to that question. to say that they fled is an unfair characterisation of what happened. they both supported the unity of pakistan on a political standpoint. neither supported the military action, and they have distanced themselves from it. mr chowdhury mueen-uddin for example, returned several times to bangladesh over the last 40 years, as never attempted to conceal his whereabouts, and has not shied away from these allegations. he has said, quite openly - he said it to this news station and publicly - that he is prepared to put himself before a credible judicial process, but this is not a credible judicial process. the government... >> it's slightly confusing. the tribunal in bangladesh said they tried to get your client, certainly chowdhury mueen
want medicare over millionair millionaires. >> seems we would be readjudicating the 2012 election altogether. i want to ask you, in the budget process, i know there was a call. it was reported that yourself and leader reid and a number of others, democratic leaders with the president, kind of all on the same page going into the budget process. and then this week, we read on wednesday that the president has said he is flexible about whether or not revenues can be on the table. and i know you've said revenues need to be on the table. harry reid has said revenues need to be on the table. are you confident that the president is going to, you know, stay with where the democratic caucus is on that issue? >> i think we'll stay together. if you have revenue on the table, you come to a bigger agreement to reduce the deficit, to grow the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has

[applause] >> in the name of god, may the blessing of god be upon you. i want to express my gratitude and esteemed to former congressman mr. jim marshall for his speech. i also want to give my thanks to mbassador beth jones for her warm words, and i want to extend to the u.s. my greetings and gratitude for their words. ecause of the development of he mechanism and the new techniques used by terrorists who undermine interests and institutions in all countries. we are
of the world. with the election of his successor on hand, what lessons does bloomberg have to share with us? one of them, cities need rich people. he'll explain. >>> and the latest weapon against bad guys. it's not a newfangled drone or bunker buster bomb. it's simply brett me to. i'll explain. >>> first, revelations about the national security agency and spying on foreign allied leaders has been embarrassing for the obama administration at a time when it hardly needs more bad news. is it more than an embarrassment? should it raise alarms abroad and at home? at first glance this is a story that is less about ethics and more about power. the great power gap between the united states and other countries, even rich european ones. the most illuminating response came from the former foreign minister of france. he said in a radio interview, let's be honest. we eavesdrop, too. everyone is listening to everyone else. he went on to add, "we don't have the same means as the united states which makes us jealous." america spends tens of billions of dollars on intelligence collection. it's hard to get d

the election. will she do something? >> i think she should. after all, she is part of this. she had family who died. let's hope she does. >> the call for accountability comes not only from those who were alive at the time but, as i discover talking to a group of students, from the young as well. this year's elections are strongly connected to the events of the past. he could be seen as the face of the military government, whereas the other could be seen as of the people. it reopens the wound and all of the problems that came from it. pinochet's office is now a museum. he was arrested but never brought to trial to face charges of torture and murder. other senior military figures are in jail, but many more have not been tried for crimes which even their own spokesman admits. >> the internal conflicts of a country are incredibly tall. but we have to fight the extremist movement. in this kind of fight, you always make mistakes and commit atrocities and excesses. the odds are on michelle returning here as president. this time, there will be a lot more pressure on her to tackle the pinochet legacy.
elections both in the house, and senate? no. not really. at all. i think that is wishful thinking on her part, as soon as the government shut down goes away, next thing, which is going -- now, is obamacare, obamacare web site, the irs is implementing the penalties and what that is going to be. and to determine people have insurance, there is more coming down that will be on their heads. neil: you could argue though, there is logic to nancy pelosi was saying in terms of already the party challenges to those republican congressmen and women, who either went along with this, they would -- they would potentially hand a safe republican seat to a democrat, happened before, you need that in some big numbers, 717 or 18 to get you there but it is possible. >> it is possible. when we sat down with nancy pelosi, she was very happy, she was saying, that for first time, they will pick up seats, not as far as a joe namath-like predict. but she is bullish, it helped democrat recruiting and fundraising, the story is now obamacare, which is a problem for democrats. in november 2014, talking about shut do

mid-term elections, i don't think there's any question that the health care story is a bigger story. because it affects more americans, more directly, it hits them where they live. it affects their livelihoods, the amount of money they pay, their pocketbook finances and more of a kitchen table issue, for most people than the spying one as important as the latter one is. and i agree with you the intent of the affordable care act in this part of it was to not only keep individuals from gaining the system but keep insurance companies and health care providers by offering cheap plans that didn't offer any insurance protection at all, that you could get kicked off of at a moment's notice, that didn't protect you from kas strofic injury, that had -- wouldn't let you have a preexisting condition that would have rigorous caps on spending by the insurance company. i've been talking to white house officials about this and they acknowledge, they will say privately, that they were kind of simplistic at times in what the president was saying, no doubt about that. because the truth is in order to
's, that unleashed this torrent of arc money into our elections. citizens united is an interesting case to study. chief justice roberts, his highlight on the court. a lot of court experts wrote of him being on a sort of progression of slowly dismantling the campaign-finance laws, the foundation of those laws we got in the 1970's. citizens united is by far the biggest there. upcoming case will be another one, the listing rules for aris. and potentially some court watchers believe, he could not down the benefits given to candidates and parties themselves. so, the citizens united is the most high-profile decision on this issue, but very much in a string of cases and we do not know how this is going to and yet either. marianne from tennessee on our line for independents. good morning. caller: good morning. i have a question about dark money. when the representatives who are supposed to be representing us shut down the government over obamacare, the stock market went down. resumed, iternment went up the same day. since these representatives get a heads up on the market movements, how many of them mad
